Chilton roars in second half against Gibraltar

The Gibraltar High School's boys basketball team kept it close through halftime against Chilton but the Tigers roared in the final 18 minutes. Chilton put up 44 points against the Vikings 18. When the final whistle blew it was a 73-45 final. 

Spencer Krause was the only Gibraltar player who scored in double digits. He picked up 15. Chilton had three players get past that mark including Camden Bowe who led all scorers with 20 points on 70 percent shooting. Gibraltar returns to the court Thursday, December 5th against Algoma. 

Xavier dominates Gibraltar girls basketball

The Gibraltar High School girls basketball team suffered its first loss of the season Saturday afternoon against a resurgent Xavier squad out of Appleton. 

Xavier Athletic Director Kathy Bates received the State Award of Merit this past week for her efforts at the school and the girls basketball team has responded with two dominating performances. They beat Lourdes by 28 points before their 69-42 victory over Gibraltar.

The Vikings are 1-1 on the season. Their next game begins Packerland Conference play on Tuesday, December 3rd at Algoma.


Gibraltar girls basketball has Saturday matinee

Fresh off a thrilling season opener at home against Coleman, the Gibraltar High School girls basketball team returns to the court Saturday afternoon. The Vikings will host Xavier. In Gibraltar's opener, they were paced by Sage Krause who had 23 points in a 48-47 nailbiter. Krause averaged under six points per game a season ago.

Xavier had a much easier time in their opener, defeating Lourdes Academy by 28 points. Xavier was under .500 last season but early returns are promising this campaign. Xavier had three players score in double figures Wednesday night, all of them from the junior and sophomore classes.


Gibraltar proud of season's accomplishments

Gibraltar head football coach Mike Peck is not quite ready to look ahead to 2020.


The Vikings saw their season end last Friday night almost the same way it did in 2018: a lopsided 61-25 loss to eight-man football powerhouse Newman Catholic. The loss does not take away what the team was able to accomplish in 2019, which included its first football conference championship in 45 years and the school's first playoff win. Peck says watch the film over again as he prepares for the team's annual football banquet with fond memories of being at least one game better than they were last year.



The team will graduate only four seniors from this year's team: Connor Duffy, Brandon Stillman, Paul Hartmann, and Dominic Krauel. 



Gibraltar can't catch Newman Catholic on 105.1 The Viking

Newman Catholic's firepower proved to be too much for Gibraltar as they fell 61-25 in the second round of the WIAA Eight-Man Playoffs Friday night on 105.1 The Viking. 


The Cardinals once again got off to a fast start, going up 21-0 in the first quarter thanks to two touchdown passes from Ben Bates and a rushing score by freshman Thomas Bates. Alex Laughlin would get the Vikings on the scoreboard in the second quarter from over 20 yards out to make it 21-6, but the freshman Bates would score three unanswered touchdowns to put the game even further out of reach. Laughlin would score again on the ground before Ben Bates capped off the final drive of the half with a nine-yard quarterback keeper. Laughlin would add two touchdowns in the third quarter including a 60-yard rushing score to open the second half, only to be matched by Newman Catholic each time.


Despite the final result, the Vikings still finished one game better than last year with an overall record of 8-3 while collecting its first-ever playoff win against Suring last week and its first conference championship in 45 years.

Gibraltar volleyball season ends at NEW Lutheran

Gibraltar High School's volleyball team fell in four sets Thursday night in Green Bay to top-seeded NEW Lutheran. The Vikings had rolled in earlier rounds of the postseason tournament playing teams that were not used to the stiff competition of the Packerland Conference. NEW Lutheran is, and they were able to take the first two hard-fought sets to build a hole that was too deep for Gibraltar to climb out of. Gibraltar lost, 22-25, 23-25, 25-17, 19-25. 

Gibraltar battles Newman Catholic on 105.1 The Viking

The Gibraltar Vikings look to do something only the 2018 Sevastopol Pioneers have been able to do when they face Newman Catholic on Friday night in the second round of the eight-man football playoffs.


The Vikings are coming off their first playoff win in school history, dispatching Suring in a thrilling 30-28 victory while the Fighting Cardinals breezed past Marion/Tigerton 56-14 in its opening round matchup. The Fighting Cardinals are 31-1 in its eight-man football history, including last year's 61-46 win over the Vikings in the opening round of the inaugural eight-man playoffs. 


Both teams are proficient in their passing with the Fighting Cardinals and the Vikings both in the top 10 in passing yards, touchdowns, and yards per game. Unlike other pass-first teams in eight-man football, the Vikings will have to figure out how to stop a Fighting Cardinals rushing attack that is also ranked top 10 in the state.


Tim Kowols will have the call on 105.1 The Viking from Stiehm Stadium in Weston, Wis. beginning at 6:30 p.m. with the pregame show followed by kickoff at 7 p.m. The game can also be heard streaming at,, and the mobile app.
